Israeli Foreign Ministry’s Director General Yuval Rotem has thanked US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for his public recognition of the partner nation’s “right” to attack pro-Iranian forces in Syria.

“Israel will never allow #Iran and its terrorist proxies in #Syria & Lebanon to endanger Israel’s sovereignty and people,” Rotem tweeted.

Addressing the Washington, D.C.-based Jewish Institute for National Security of America (JINSA) on October 10, Pompeo reiterated the US administration’s “unwavering support” for Israel.

In particular, Pompeo claimed that Israel had the sovereign right to “target Iranian-backed militias” in Syria, and pledged that the United States would continue to stand up for this right.

Over the last two years, Israel has struck Syria on multiple occasions, claiming that it targets Iran-backed forces, including Hezbollah.
The nation has vowed to continue its air raids, despite the crash of the Russian Il-20 off the Syrian coast, which Moscow blamed on Tel Aviv and subsequent deliveries of Russia’s S-300 air defenses to the Arab Republic.

Actually, under international law (Hague convention), IDF but also US militaries have the right to go after nonetheless Iranian-backed militias (Hezbollocks here) but also directly against Iranian militaries and anywhere on Earth… The 1979 invasion of US diplomatic mission in Tehran and having kept the personnel as hostages for more than a year was already a casus-belli… So were the numerous bombings of US embassies by Hezbollocks or the mass-murder of US Blue Helmets in Beirut.

If there were ever any doubt as to who owns this administration, this should clear that up. Just another in a long line of Zionist puppets. It’s the bowing and scraping that makes me sick. I hope Nutsack has ten different STDs and he gives them all to the Buffoon and his troop of suck-ups.
